Secret Word Has Retired

As of today, there will be no more Secret Word, but please note the daily trivia on My GSNΒ > My To-DoodlesΒ has gone from 100 Oodles to 250 Oodles***.

That means there will be no loss of daily OodlesΒ Monday through Friday

***Please note the 250 Oodles will go in effect Thursday, 6/8

    • jrayburg, the weekend trivia was 100 Oodles a day, same as the week days. Now it’s 200 oodles a day. That is a gain.

      • Midnight trivia-100 Oodles, secret word of the day-100 Oodles,watch and earn-50 bonus Oodles. My weekend Oodles were also 200. That’s a loss in my book.

        • You’re right. Just weekdays increased from 100 to 200 Oodles. Starting on Thursday, the trivia question will be worth 250 Oodles, so that will be a little bump on the weekends (I was told there was a watch and play for 50 Oodles after the Secret Word, so that makes up for it).

        • Sorry, I just checked the trivia history, you’re right about it already being 200 Oodles each question on the weekend. The week day ones have been raised to 200 oodles (so still no loss, it evens things up)

    • The weekends had already increased to 200 oodles when the other Trivia question was removed- so there’s NO gain…
      ☹ sorry ….

      • Hi Steve, you’re right. Just weekdays increased from 100 to 200 Oodles. Starting on Thursday, the trivia question will be worth 250 Oodles, so that will be a little bump on the weekends (I was told there was a watch and play for 50 Oodles after the Secret Word, so that makes up for it).

  1. WELL NO WONDER YOU NEEDED TO LEAVE FOR A FEW DAYS! No more Secret Word…..how depressing! (I never seem to get the Trivia questions correct, so this was at least a sure bet for me!)

    I may need Therapy….at least a couple fruity cocktails..with those little paper umbrella’s to get thru this……

      • HEY!! ANOTHER REASON FOR FRUITY COCKTAILS WITH LITTLE PAPER UMBRELLA’S…..I WON $75 IN GAME CREDITS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Petron, Mango Juice, Raspberry Liquor, Lime wedges, ice…AND A PAPER UMBRELLA! My made-up-myself ‘Cindy’s Perfect Paper Umbrella Cocktail’!!!) OKAY…YOU ARE BUYING!!

    • go to gsn.games on facebook – answer is given by 2 players every night at midnight πŸ™‚ – and they did take away an extra video for 50 oodles when you clicked on next after playing the secret word

      • Flo, starting on Thursday, the trivia question will be worth 250 Oodles, so that will take care of the watch and earn for 50 Oodles after the Secret Word πŸ™‚

        • GSNAngel,

          There was both an AM and PM oodles bonus trivia Ads for oodles, So we are missing 100 every weekday (500 a week). To compensate the trivia question would have to go to 300 oodles per day.

          • Hi ilock21, I’ll look into it on Monday (I need to be gone tomorrow again). Thank you for your patience!

      • Hi Flo,
        There was both an AM and PM oodles bonus trivia Ads between the bonus trivia questions every Monday to Friday. So, we are missing 50 oodles in the AM Ads and another 50 oodles in the PM Ads every weekday (500 a week). To compensate the trivia question would have to award 300 oodles per day.

        • ilock21, if you were getting 50 oodles for ads in the am and pm, i don’t know how. i was getting the one in the pm only…when i could get an ad to credit. πŸ™‚

          • 2jellybeans, they used to credit fine until Oct-Nov 2016. Since then ads have been a mess.

    • Cindy, a simple search on Google will help you get the answers correctly, or you can join us over at GSN Fellow Oodlers (can also be found by searching) where we always have the answers posted. πŸ™‚

      • Except for the 250 oodles ya lose during the week for the extra 50 oodles after ya answer the Secret Word.

        • So, are you saying there was an ad to watch between the questions? Or how did the 50 extra come in to play? I can request that be added back if possible.

          • jrayburg, thank you, starting tomorrow (Thursday) the trivia questions will all be worth 250 Oodles each (even on weekends)

        • Hi Daniel,
          There was both an AM and PM oodles bonus trivia Ads between the bonus trivia questions every Monday to Friday. So, we are missing 50 oodles in the AM Ads and another 50 oodles in the PM Ads every weekday (500 a week). To compensate the trivia question would have to award 300 oodles per day.

  2. Thanks GSN Angel, never thought to google as I thought that was cheating BUT you live & learn πŸ™‚ and welcome back πŸ™‚

  3. I like the change.Less time waiting and searching in the afternoon.By the way,your
    Trivia questions are fun.
    Betty

    • I truly understand change is hard, but retiring the Secret Word does not equate “going downhill” since the trivia was bumped from 100 to 200 Oodles during the week.

  4. Seems to me that something is going on with this website. I WORRY THAT ONE DAY I’LL LOG ON AND IT WILL BE NO MORE. You keep changing things. So many ads (between games that didn’t use to have them), which don’t often work. It would be nice if we could get some honest answers about what’s going on?????????

    • Hi Camit, nothing’s going on. We’ve done secret word with TV for years. We’re not as much a part of the TV side of things anymore though, so we decided it made sense to retire it. It saves them having to program it on TV and we can up the trivia rewards so it evens out Oodle-wise.

  5. Several months ago, you said there would soon be new and better prizes. When will this happen? There are no real prizes left to buy.

    • Hi Georganne, click here for a link to what was posted. I know we’re evaluating player feedback regarding it, and yours is very much appreciated.

      • That post was sent 4 months and 1 day ago and still no PRIZE CHANGES. See why everyone is upset. Hope you got my message I sent you regarding the ad header problem when you were gone those few days. It was an apology for all the grief you had to take over that issue. You were great about all the posts to you about them. Now you need to get on them about the prizes. You DO have a voice there. Thanks again for all you do.

        • momas1954, thank you for your kind words. I am sending every post about the prize center on to the prize team. I have a spreadsheet!

  6. We always got 200 oodles each day,100 for the trivia &100 for the secret word. No loss, No gain..I always search google for the trivia question if i’m not sure i know it.

  7. The discontinuing of the secret word is neither here nor there for me, as you always had the answer posted in player news. Until I discovered that, I resented it because I had to guess at it. The cable company we have our computer access had GSN as part of their sports packages and we generally don’t watch sports. At least you increased the daily to compensate.

  8. The upside is log on in the morning get your 250 oodles, play a few games and not have to go back later in the day. The downside is not much of a reason to go to Player News anymore.

      • Okay I will try, When you get my age you tend to forget things. My reminder was check for the secret word at 3 and then I would look at the Player News headlines. Now that there is no secret word I have to find a new reminder.

  9. This is pretty much a non-issue for me. I still wish they’d put some products in the “Buy it Now” prize category that are at least as substantial as the magazine subscriptions were.
    BTW I never could figure out how 20% could miss the word. I guess they were ignorant of the post in this section.
    Also-
    I foresee a significant drop in the traffic here.

  10. Angel, I’m glad you are back, ⚘ Thanks for hearing us out…
    We can all agree that we love our Oodles here. ❀

  11. Just to let you know that I’m grateful for the free oodles. You don’t have to give them at all, but thank you for doing it. I don’t mind the change; I actually like it better. Thank you again!!

  12. There’s always a reason to visit Player News. Sometimes I just check it to read comments. You never know when there is a special here. Every now and then you get information on a special or they might put something like enter a code for free Oodles or free Tokens. You just never know.

  13. It is somewhat bittersweet seeing the trivia questions diminish to one. I enjoyed learning something new everyday. Now I guess I just learn learn less, but in less time too.

  14. Hi Angel! Did I read your comment correctly earlier? You are bringing back MVO and Players Pets? I always looked forward to seeing all the furry friends, I have a couple fur babies I would love to show everyone πŸ™‚ And the chance to be chosen as an MVO would be a dream come true!! Have a truly fabulous weekend!

    • YES Pegmaster1! It probably will not happen until sometime in mid-July for Player’s Pets, and August for MVO, but it’s something I’m definitely working towards. I miss both! πŸ™‚

  15. Missed those oodles from secret word but found other ways to get my oodles!!!! So keep up the good work gsnllll

  16. Hi GSNAngel,

    I hope all is well with you.

    When we had the additional three Oodles Bonus Trivia questions, there was an AM video ad in between the questions that awarded 50 oodles points daily.

    At 3 PM, after the secret word was posted there was a PM video ad in between the questions that awarded another 50 oodles points daily.

    When in February 6, 2017 GSN moved to have only have one Oodles Bonus Trivia question it took away this video ad. Now with the secret word retired another video ad is gone. So that is 100 oodles per day that we lost.

    To compensate the Oodles Bonus Trivia question would have to go to 300 oodles daily.

  17. yes i know the ad for in between the trivia question & secret word was 50 oodles which we lost now we should be compensated for that which would make the trivia question 300 oodles

  18. why did me post get erased last fridayit said there is susposed to be 300 oodles for the morning trivia there was 2 ads for 50 oodles so theres susposed to be 300 there was 3 trivia questions 1 secret word & a morning 50 oodles & a afternoon ad for 50 oodles why not credited for it ?

    • Hi Phillip, its there, I see it. Like I said, I put in a request to check this out (I’m getting different feedback regarding this)
